Three Centuries with the Eternal Guru

To mark the celebrations of the tercentenary of the elevation of the Guru Granthh Saahib as the Eternal Guru (teacher) of the Sikhs, a rather comprehensive yet concise write-up has appeared in the Sunday Magazine section of 'The Hindu', on October 26. In it have been described the events leading up to the elevation, those whose writings have been included in the holy book, besides the nature and structure of its contents and the manner in which these have been set to Hindustani classical music.

Sidhu have you written this story? I don’t know from where this question came, may be it is the last comment.

There’s a lot of hi’story’ here. Perhaps that was what the comment meant to convey.

Or perhaps it refers to the news-story that has been linked to in the blog-post. According to the byline, the author is S. Harpal Singh.

There should be zero tolerance for terrorism in a democracy but then terrorism flourishes for number of reasons, not in a vacuum or

only because of religious fanaticism.Terrorism cannot disappear simply through military or security operations. We must address

the root causes while simultaneously exhorting our youth to imbibe highest values of our religion, culture and traditions. We all

should have to try stop this terrorism from the root so that we can’t lose any GOD’ s gift by chance.
